Windows embedded pricing... RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I want to develop a mission specific device, and plan to lower cost less than us$30, should I or could I choose Windows embedded as my platform?

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks a lot!

  • It depends on what you are building. Windows 10 IoT Core is royalty free. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise has different licensing levels so you will have to contact a distributor for more information.

    Over all cost is something you will have to calculate. There are tool costs, support costs, etc. Most of the development tools from Microsoft are free. Also there are off the shelf platforms that are inexpensive, but have lower performance processors. You will have to take into account processor and board life cycle.

    Hope that helps.
